Demo of the Living Dead

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

So, for the last couple of days I’ve been checking out the Left 4 Dead demo on Steam, and I really like what I’m seeing so far.
At first blush, the zombies appear like your garden-variety zombies; they shamble around aimlessly and don’t seem to intelligent. Well, the second part’s right; they really aren’t that [...]

Getting into (Wii) shape

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

So, this past week my wife and I picked up a Wii and a Wii Fit. Both of these were excellent purchases. The Wii is something that I’ve wanted pretty much since I found out about it; it’s really the only one of the three major consoles that I’m interested in, as I’m [...]

R. A. Salvatore at Borders

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

Last night, I went to Delaware to see R. A. Salvatore at Borders for a question/answer session and a book signing. He (and his son Geno) were there to promote their new books. The Salvatores put on a good show, they answered some good questions, and I got my copy of Homeland signed, [...]

Ordered!

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

On Thursday, I went ahead and ordered Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game. I liked it so much when I played it that I just couldn’t resist. It’s slated to arrive on Tuesday, and I’ve already got plans to play it with a friend on Wednesday. Awesome.

Random Junk

Monday, May 19th, 2008

May 10th?! Sheesh, it sure has been a long time since I’ve posted. Bad blogger, bad! At any rate, I thought I’d post with some random stuff that’s been on my mind lately, some of it 4E-related, some not. We’ll start with the not.
Zombies. Who the hell doesn’t love zombies? [...]

Update

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

It occurs to me that I haven’t been posting lately, so I guess I’ll go ahead and update you all on some things.
Games I’ve been playing
Sadly, I haven’t really done much board/card/role-playing gaming lately since the big TPK. I did play a game of Three-Dragon Ante with my friend Dean; it was quite good. [...]

4E Again

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Yesterday, I ran another proto-4E module; this time, instead of using one that I downloaded from the Internet, I created one myself. And yes, I have observations on that process:
1. Re-purposing monsters is easy. I mean, really easy. On the one hand, monsters are pretty distinct from each other, and each have [...]

The Rogue

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

Wizards just posted an article about the 4th Edition rogue. Let’s see what we can learn from it.
1. Armor Training: Leather. At first blush, this seems pretty restricted; they’re only trained with leather armor? However, the Classes and Races book makes mention of the fact that terms that used to represent a [...]

Parsing the Fiend

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

It’s been quite a while since my last post, and for that I apologize. I have no particular excuse other than the usual: games and lack of motivation. At any rate, I read something just now that motivated me to make a post: the Monster Manual entry for the 4th Edition Pit Fiend.
Here’s [...]

Holiday Haul

Tuesday, January 1st, 2008

Apologies for the lack of posting; I’ve been busy with my Christmas gifts. Highlights include:
1. A Garmin GPS unit for my car. Extremely useful.
2. A Nintendo DS, along with two games (The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Age of Empires: The Age of Kings). I’ve finished Zelda already, due primarily to [...]
